Happy New Year – 2011

As we enter 2011, please keep in mind one thing – “A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out another” – anonymous.

I found the greetings below at guy-sports.com:

Note: In some languages the accents are important, for example in Spanish you really do need the tilde over the ‘n’ in Año.  Ano without a tilde, has the most unfortunate meaning happy new anus.

One response to “Happy New Year – 2011

  1. Should be “Prost Neujahr” in Germany… “Prosit” is just the latin phrase we derivated the “Prost”, which is nowadays much more frequently used. And well… Happy New Year is “Frohes Neues (Jahr)”, wuite the same phrase.
    But I love sending those greetings, so please dont be pissed off 🙂

    I’m happy you aren’t mad. I just found this and thought it fun to be able to (try to) say Happy New Year to friends around the world. Thanks for visiting and commenting – and correcting! Happy New Year.
